      We thank you for your continued support for the Missouri State Council of Fire Fighters and are extremely excited about our latest fundraising effort.  The MSCFF has partnered with Jacked Up Giveaways and are giving away a 2014 Silverado 1500 Dream Truck built by KC Customs of Gladstone, MO.

      So how do I get a chance at winning this new Truck?  It is as simple as visiting the Jacked Up Giveaways website and making a Donation.  The drawing for this Grand Prize will be held on December 16, 2014, so it gives you plenty of time to purchase as many chances as you like over the course of the next 6 months.  The Official Rules of this event are listed at the bottom of the Donate To Enter page.  Donations start as low as 2 Tickets for $20.00.

      Missouri Representative Jacob Hummel, St. Louis Councilman Steve Stenger and candidate for St. Louis County Executive with MSCFF Legislative Affairs Director Mark Habbas.

      The Delegates at the 50th IAFF Convention passed Resolution #23 "Our Good Name" which applies to the use of the IAFF Logo.

      This resolution condemns the act of ordering or applying this union’s good name in the form of the IAFF Logo, the letters IAFF or the words “International Association of Fire Fighters” to any piece of apparel or merchandise that is not UNION made, or is made outside of the United States of America or Canada.

      Union Shop Apparel is one of the only organizations within North America that fully complies with Resolution #23.  All of the employees at Union Shop Apparel are members of IUPAT Local 820.  We invite you to visit their website and checkout their new Online Store.  They specialize in Custom Embroidery and Silk Screening.

      What's New at MSCFF
